My daughter just turned 3 months on the 17 of december and she acts like she is tired of formula. Like she won't eat it and I know she is hungry. What can I do to get her interest back in it? I have tried different types of formula and they don't seem to sit well with her. She throws them up. I don't want her on babyfood til at least 4 months of age any suggestions please I don't want her losing any weight. TIA.

You could try changing her formula brand or breast feeding her (if you can). But perhaps she would enjoy you slowly introducing a TINY bit of baby food into her bottle a little bit later on.
I don't think this is recommended by doctors so you might want to ask first, at 3 1/2 months I started to put about an oz of baby food into my sons' formula. His doctor thought it was a little too early to introduce any baby food but wasn't concerned; since it was such a small amount mixed into formula and wasn't a daily thing. My doctor was more worried that I was over feeding my son but he is 4 now and perfectly healthy and slender and was always freakishly muscular for a toddler, he met all his milestones super early so I don't think I did any harm by adding a small amount of baby food to his formula. I was young and thought he might like some variety, silly me I guess. I know infants have sensitive digestive systems so maybe research a bit. My son had no side effects in his stool or anything and slept better on the days I did add a bit of baby food in his bottle but every baby is different and what helps or works or seems normal for one baby might not be so for another. If your'e worried about processed baby foods (like most of us are) you could puree or blend your own.
